Conduction Cooled Single Board Computer in EMX Basic Form Factor features Intel Atom E680T CPU

Eletter Product

Diamond Systems newest single board computer, Altair, is a rugged EMX Basic single board computer (SBC) based on the Intel Atom E680T CPU running at 1.6GHz, featuring dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, 4 serial ports, and 4 USB 2.0 ports. Altair is also the first SBC to implement the new EmbeddedXpress? (EMX) stackable I/O standard, the next step in I/O connectivity for small form factor embedded computing.

Diamond Systems newest single board computer, Altair, is a rugged EMX Basic single board computer (SBC) based on the Intel Atom E680T CPU running at 1.6GHz, featuring dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, 4 serial ports, and 4 USB 2.0 ports. Altair is also the first SBC to implement the new EmbeddedXpress™ (EMX) stackable I/O standard, the next step in I/O connectivity for small form factor embedded computing.

Altair supports 1GB or 2GB of DDR2 DRAM soldered on-board and provides high-resolution LVDS and VGA graphics interfaces. Additional I/O ports include SATA, USB, serial, digital I/O, and dual Gigabit Ethernet. Flexible system expansion is based on stackable EMX modules, and a PCIe MiniCard socket. A socket is also provided for an optional on-board USB flashdisk of up to 8GB.

Altair's power-efficient design leverages Intel's ultra-low-power (Queensbay) silicon platform, consisting of the Atom E680T (Tunnel Creek) processor and chipset (Topcliff). The heat-generating CPU and chipset are located on the bottom side of the SBC, and a conduction cooled bottom-mounted heatspreader dissipates heat efficiently to the system enclosure. This configuration leaves the SBC's top side free for easy access to on-board I/O and expansion sockets.
